The One Hour Plays (Matey Institute)

By | Published on Saturday 27 August 2011

Mismatched garments and materials adorn the stage, creating a bohemian feel to this show. This is enhanced by the eccentric cast, especially Brendan Murphy, who is brilliant as the frenetic director trying to organise and manage his small theatre company. During the hour, the objective is for the audience to help the cast devise and create a ten minute, three act play, and, truth be told, the production process is equally – if not more enjoyable than the end result. At times things do seem to get quite manic, but this just adds to the gathering momentum and anticipation as to whether the team will actually pull it off. This is a truly unique and very entertaining experience, well worth seeing.

Underbelly, Aug 15 – 28, 12.00pm (1.00pm), £7.00 – £9.00, fpp285.
